Curd rice

Call it curd rice or fodni bhaat. It is good for digestion and can be eaten when you are weak in your health. Good for elderly people and even small kids.

I have seen some South Indians prefer to end their meal with a plate of curd rice. It is always a treat to eat this refreshing recipe.

Cooked rice: 2 cup (depends how much you want to eat per serving)
Plain curd: 1 cup (select low fat for diet recipe)
Split white urad dal: 1 tea spoon
Mustard seeds: 1/2 tea spoon
Cumin seeds: 1/2 tea spoon
Ginger crushed: 1 tea spoon
Curry leaves: handful
Green chili finely chopped: to the taste (optional)
Salt to taste
Oil/ clarified butter (ghee): 1 table spoon (take less if you want low fat)
Finely chopped coriander or mint for garnish: 1 table spoon

This recipe can be made in minutes. It doesn't require much preparation apart from cooking rice.

Heat the pan, add 1 table spoon of oil. Let it get hot. Add urad dal and allow it to change the color a bit. Add cumin and mustard seeds and let it splutter.
Add curry leaves, ginger, chili and stir it a bit for few seconds. Now add rice and stir well. Add salt to taste.
Turn the heat off. Add yogurt and mix well.
Garnish with coriander or mint and serve hot.
